Dave Chappelle explains what convinced him to host "Saturday Night Live"

  • Added:  2 months ago
  • After what he calls a career "detour," comedian Dave Chappelle is making a comeback with three new Netflix specials. In a rare interview, he tells "CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King about the tipping point that made him "resolute" on his "Saturday Night Live" appearance last November: SNL's first new show after President Donald Trump was elected into office. Watch Gayle King's in-depth interview with Chappelle Monday, March 20, only on "CBS This Morning."

    He looks sad. He keeps looking around like hes being watched. I feel bad for him. He's not the same. Look at his behavior. Everything is not about his weight gain

    "sometimes you're the villain." and now I'm thinking back on even the tiniest of instances where I had done somebody wrong... The more I think about it, the more I realize I'm just as much a sidekick, villain, or even just an extra in somebody else's story; just as much as I'm the hero in my own.

    what I love about this interview is, unlike so many people in hollywood, dave is fidgetting sometimes in the interview, looking around while he's talkin, consistently breaking eye contact. To me, that looks like he's a real guy who's sincere in how he's talking and what he's saying. You dont really see that too often in TV.

    Dave Chapelle is not the same. He seems slowed down. Like the fire inside was extinguished. That's the best analogy I have of relating pre "Africa" Chapelle to post Africa Chapelle, to use that as a marker. But whatever. Maybe he matured and chilled out. But still, I get a big sense of conflictedness with his persona before his hiatus and after. And I am not really satisfied with the info provided. I am not the one to figure this mystery out. But he used to be genuinely funny. Now it's like... weird. EDIT: And no I am not implying that he is a clone. Because I understand that is a popular theory being tossed around. I do get a gut sense of something being fishy though.

    He sold out. Now he has to rape kids on camera to be part of the elite. Please investigate: The Franklin Cover Up, Johnny Gosch, Jeffrey Epstein, Virginia Roberts, Jimmy Savile, Corey Feldman, Elijah Wood, and the list goes on and on. The name of the game is blackmail.....they have you rape a child on camera then they have you blackmailed for life. To move up in politics or Hollywood....this is something you have to do or you will be stuck at the bottom. The general public is too naive and stupid to connect the dots. 800,000 children go missing every year in America....and the news NEVER covers it.

    David Chappell is amazing, this interview shows even the bedt, richest, famous ppl get insecure, hurt, etc. But pressing on is a lesson that applies to all.

    Dave, stay away from the deranged, idiotic, mainstream media whores like Gayle King, and the other libtard losers and Hillary sycophants at SNL.

    You are too brilliant, to be taken down to their filthy level.

    I think his looking around has nothing do with what you guys are talking about, I think it's just a tick. For example he looks at the ground too at the end, is he looking for thugs that come from the ground? No, I find my self doing this sometimes too and I'm not paranoid lol.

      Demond Tate I met him in SF's punchline years ago he explained his life no jokes just answering questions and this ain't him. Totally different mentality.

    • PharaohGoddess1
      PharaohGoddess1 1 month ago

      Demond Tate That's what the fuck I've been saying. They have been working on him and with him. His voice is much deeper than the REAL CHAPPELLE. He dresses different. He seems less concerned with morals and ethics which is some of what his last interviews were he was speaking up before he disappeared. He's a look a like. Years before there was a so called David Chappelle death hoax. These aren't hoaxes. Anybody can be replaced with enough money and surgery.

    Love Dave! But what is wrong with him? He seems really sketch! Like someone is after him? Looking over his shoulder at noises like he owes someone a lot! Miss the skinny Dave as well, he seemed a lot more relaxed back in the day! Not saying he did but seems like either he is fienin or crack already messed his brain up to the point of no return.

    Great interview and that's great on his decision to remain out of the public eye. I'm different on the other hand in respect that I love acting and directing and what I do and would never stop. I think all of those in the public eye get tired of the new trend of Fake News and sensationalism, but never enough to make you stop creating and doing what you love to do. But can understand his view. I'm different in that respect. Just taking flight.

    He used to speak his mind and had to go into hiding so going along with the flow and his acceptance of promoting the regular narratives was the smart thing to do. He was right back in the spotlight with a huge contract as soon as he did it. Survival should always be the priority.
